What We Teach
A simple and powerful meditation technique
Our program focuses on Samatha meditation, which has its roots in Buddhist teachings.
Samatha is a Pali word that may be defined as calm abiding. The object of Samatha meditation
is to calm our mind and therefore calm our lives. By focusing our attention on a spot on the body
and silently repeating a single word mantra, we allow our minds naturally to come to a peaceful state. read more...
